Maines Worst Road Contest


We know it can’t be Kittery, but it is a notable contest with a free bumper sticker for entering. Even if you enter the MAINE contest and still have an issue in Kittery as well, you can still call the DPW at 207-439-0333. But understand we don’t give out free bumper stickers.

Everyone who enters will receive the official 2014 Worst Road in Maine bumper sticker. The grand prize winner will take home $296 – that’s how much the average Maine driver spends annually on extra car repairs due to rough roads.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine residents can now enter a contest to find the worst road in the state for a cash prize – and serious bragging rights.

The Maine Better Transportation Association says photos and a brief description can be submitted through its website for the Worst Road in Maine Contest. Nominations that began in early April are accepted through May 15.

The association says potholes and frost heaves make state roads some of the worst in the nation. Executive Director Maria Fuentes says the prize of $296 is how much the average Mainer spends on car repairs due to poor roads.

Route 141 in Waldo County won the last contest in 2011. The nominee blamed the uneven road for aggravating her son’s back condition by causing severe pain.
